    Prison Architect

    Last time around the game landed me in the story sequence of its tutorial, and taught me quite a specific lesson about building certain things in the game. This time, however, I landed straight into a large pre-built prison, and instead of following instructions I simply took charge of what someone at Introversion – perhaps Chris, the programmer – had already constructed.

    I watched things play out. As soon as I’d loaded the level up there was a fight about to break out in the showers. A huge brawl of bodies surged into the large shower complex, with one of the inmates going down quite rapidly. A lone guard, far ahead of his colleagues, waded in, and was stabbed to death. Soon after the rest of the guards bundled in, pacifying the riot and cleaning up the mess. Even before it was over I had begun to wonder at the collection of rules that must govern the behaviour of the AI, and dictate how events play out in the prison. I looked at the tiny corpses of the guard and inmate. I reloaded the level.

    I've liked introversion's games thus far, pretty original ideas.

    If PA is anything like the older Theme <something> games, then it should be pretty awesome.

    That video just made me want to play the storyline more than sandbox. In a good way. The storytelling art technique looks fantastic!

    Looks interesting, I was hoping for more info around whether or not your prisoners will form gangs and so on within the prison etc. So it would be theme park but with a social engineering flavour added to it.

    I would be quite disappointed if there would not be gangs in the final game, as they are quite prominent feature of real life prisons

    Yeah, getting the prison ink removed isn't cheap.

    I think 20-25$ would be better for them, yeah, but considering it is a dynamic management game and not artsyfartsy2Dplatformer9999, I find the price to be reasonable.

    Also, that's only 23.23€!
